Starting Online therapy

What is online therapy?

With Thriveworks, Online therapy is an effective alternative to in-person therapy services in which a client can speak to a Thriveworks therapist remotely via online video conferencing. Online sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment, but they can also provide added benefits like reduced travel time, saving money on transportation or childcare, and increased access to care.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy works much like traditional in-person therapy but takes place through secure video conferencing. Clients can attend Online therapy from any safe place they choose that has access to the internet, whether that be their home or another easily accessible place. Like in-person treatment, a therapist will work with their client to address their concerns, create goals, and establish an effective treatment plan.

What is the best option for online therapy?

There is no best option for online therapy—instead, it's best to focus on finding a provider that meets your speicifc needs and with wom you can form a professional connection with.

Is online therapy just as effective?

Yes, online therapy is just as effetive for many clients as in-person sessions.

How long does online therapy last?

Online therapy can last for a few months to years depending on the goals and symptoms of the client. The treatment process will be unique to each client and lend itself to their specific concerns, which means that the time it takes to treat them will always be different. Timing is also up to the client themselves; they are free to stop therapy whenever they please, especially if they feel they have reached their goals and addressed their concerns.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Flagstaff, AZ accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

Caroline was excited but nervous to have her firstborn. She always knew that she wanted to be a mom; however, she also knew that it wasn’t a piece of cake. All of these nerves and anxiety built up over the course of the 9 months. And while she hoped that they’d subside the moment her daughter was born, that didn’t happen. Not in the least bit

In the days that followed the birth of her baby, Lucy, Caroline’s anxiety grew bigger and bigger. She couldn’t stop her racing mind. They housed horrible thoughts about her baby getting hurt or dying, like:

  • What if Lucy stops breathing in the middle of the night?
  • What if my husband drops her or doesn’t support her head properly?
  • What if Lucy rolls over in her crib and hurts herself?
  • What if I fall asleep and I don’t hear Lucy crying for me?

Caroline did everything in her power to ensure that these thoughts didn’t come true. She never left Lucy’s side, even refusing to let her husband and others hold her. At night, instead of sleeping in her own bed, she slept on the floor next to Lucy’s crib.

Fortunately, Caroline’s family helped her realize that she had a problem. After talking to a counselor, it became clear that she suffered from postpartum anxiety. And she was able to get the help that she needed to manage this out-of-control worry surrounding her newborn. 

Online counselors can help people manage symptoms of mental illness and address other mental health challenges from the comfort of home. A huge obstacle in receiving mental health care is finding an office with availability or even overcoming one’s nerves to meet with the counselor. Online counseling offers a solution to these and other obstacles. 

If you’d like to try online counseling, call Thriveworks Counseling in Flagstaff, AZ. We can connect you with an online therapist right away, and you can expect to have your first session the same week if not the same day. Just call our office when you’re ready to get started.

Is Online Counseling Effective? How Does It Work?

People who have never received virtual health care wonder if online counseling is effective. The answer is yes: Online counseling isn’t just an easy way to get the mental health care you’re looking for, it’s effective too. Some counseling clients even find that online counseling is more effective than in-person counseling, especially those who struggle to open up in in-person therapy.

At Thriveworks in Flagstaff, AZ, we have two effective counseling options available:

  1. Telephone counseling: In telephone counseling, you work with your counselor via phone call. Your Thriveworks provider will simply call you at the time of your session.
  2. Video therapy: In video therapy, you work with your therapist via videoconference. You will be sent a secure link well before your appointment, which you will then click on at the time of your scheduled appointment. Your Thriveworks provider will meet you there!

Telephone counseling and video therapy will both support your mental health journey. You can learn to manage stress and mental illness symptoms, communicate better with your partner, work through traumatic experiences, and more. 

Your online therapist will get to know your needs and then cater treatment to those needs. They can offer a wide range of behavioral health services online, including individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, and more.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
